Aims and Scope

Aims and Scope

Forbes Journal of Medicine, as a double-blind peer-reviewed journal, includes experimental, basic, original clinical studies in the field of Medicine and Health Sciences and is published three times a year (in April, August and December); publishes reviews, case reports, and letter articles to the editor. The referees that editors will consider as the main factor in the selection of the manuscript are selected from external independent persons who are experts in their fields. We aim to qualify the journal as a publication where academicians of Medicine and Health Sciences will have the opportunity to share their scientific studies by publishing and benefit as a reference.

Studies that emphasize these aims provide the basis for publication, including original articles, reviews, case reports, letters to the editor, and annual meetings' abstracts. All articles must be submitted to Forbes Journal of Medicine exclusively with the understanding that they have not been published previously in print or electronic format and not under consideration by any other journal or electronic medium for publication.

All submitted manuscripts are first evaluated by the editorial board in terms of compliance with the journal's publishing policies. Appropriate articles are sent to double blind peer review. After the articles are received, they are evaluated and the first decision is forwarded to the author within two months.

The editorial and publication process of the Forbes Journal of Medicine are shaped in accordance with the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), World Association of Medical Editors (WAME), Council of Science Editors (CSE), Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), European Association of Science Editors (EASE), and National Information Standards Organization (NISO). The journal is in conformity with the Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing.
